A WORD FROM THE EDITOR


Dear visitor and international investor,


We warmly welcome you, if this is your first visit to Africabiz Online - The ultimate newsletter on trading and investing in 49 sub-Saharan African countries. If you are a regular and faithful reader, welcome back.

- THE ECONOMIC PLIGHT OF AFRICAN COUNTRIES: NO MORE A CONCERN FOR G8 LEADERS

Over years, during the 2000-2010 decade, Africabiz Online analyzed G8/G20 summits's communiqués, to reach the conclusion that the most developed countries's annual gathering would never deliver "generous" financial assistance pledged to assist the economic developing of African nations. Click following links [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12] to review Africabiz Online's opinion many times expressed summit after summit, warning African nations not to bank to much on such promises, and to search for alternative strategies to establishing strong global economy that creates riches for all.

Indeed, until the current economic crisis became a public matter during the last term of year 2008, the G8 leaders had clearly spelt out money pledged to assist the developing of African nations - in the range of several billions of US dollar, even if no specific information were provided about the timing to deliver the eventual disbursement of funds - which casts doubt on the "sincerity" of the pledge.

Now, these promises for financial assistance are vaguely expressed and no figures given - as shown in point 6 of the Communiqué, The Muskoka Declaration - Recovery and New Beginning below quoted, released at the end of the last summit held at Toronto, Canada, 25-26 June 2010.


"Support for development, based on mutual responsibility, and a strong partnership with developing countries, particularly in Africa, remains a cornerstone of the G8’s approach. We will pursue our comprehensive approach to development aiming at sustainable outcomes. We reaffirm our commitments, including on ODA and enhancing aid effectiveness. We call on developing country governments to meet their primary responsibilities for social and economic development and good governance, in the interests of their citizens. Since the most vulnerable states have made the least progress towards the MDGs, we will place special emphasis on helping them build the foundations for peace, security and sustainable development."

Forgotten are the promise made at Heiligendamm / Germany/ G8 Summit (June 6-8, 2007), to deliver a financial package amounting to US$62 billion, to fight against AIDS / HIV in African countries; at the G20 summit gathering in London, UK, April 2-3, 2009, to make available a global financing package amounting to US$ 250 million, to stop economic decline and pursue the developing process; and three months later, at L'Aquilla, Italy, July 8-10, 2009 - $20 billion in aid to help poor nations feed themselves

The purpose of the current analysis of The Muskoka Declaration, is not to lodge a complaint about the cynical behavior of G8 leaders, as Africabiz Online had, since long ago, reached the conclusion that G8 Will Never Deliver. This issue is only making a point to link with the series about the Collapse of a Predatory Economic System [1, 2]

- MISCELLANEOUS SERIES:RENEWABLE ENERGY: PART VII: INTRODUCTION TO ETHANOL AS AN INDUSTRIAL PRODUCE TO BOOSTING THE ECONOMY

In developing countries, and in African nations in particular, straw, hay and leaves - by-products of cereals's and tropical fruits's crops - are not used as raw materials to generate additional revenues.

Previous deliveries [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11] discussed how biomass/ vegetable waste could be used as raw materials to generate electricity and solve the existing power crisis in most African countries.

The current delivery introduces Ethanol's production as a gateway to manufacturing innumerable industrial produces, food stuffs and fuel energy - to boosting the global economy.

- ETHANOL'S DEFINITION

Ethanol, also called ethyl alcohol, pure alcohol, grain alcohol, or drinking alcohol, is a volatile, flammable, colorless liquid. In common usage, it is often referred to simply as alcohol or spirits.

Its molecular organic formula is C2H5OH or CH3–CH2–OH indicates the presence of a hydroxyl group (–OH). That hydroxyl group is the main organic structural point that allows for the synthesis, bonding and or combination of innumerable chemicals, food stuffs, and cosmetics produces.

The fermentation of sugar into ethanol is practiced since ages by humanity to produce alcoholic beverages for human drinking and for specific beverages offered to the Gods. Ethanol intended for industrial use is also produced from by-products of petroleum refining.

- WORLD PRODUCTION

As shown on the table below exposed, the United States of America and Brazil dominate the market. Both countries represent 87 percent of world's ethanol production.

You may pay attention to the figures corresponding to "Other" in the table - that stand for more than 170 countries, which account for only one percent of world production. This means that the production of 48 sub-saharan African countries is non-existent - far less than one percent of world production.

That is unfortunate as ethanol is an essential raw material to manufacturing innumerable industrial produces - chemicals and food stuffs, in addition to ethanol fuel energy.

- ETHANOL INDUSTRY'S CONTRIBUTION TO THE GLOBAL ECONOMY

A report available at this link outlines the contribution of the ethanol industry to the United States's economy.

Please do read through that remarkable report that shows why any developing country should develop a bio-ethanol industry to cater for its national market's industrial needs - and boost its global economy, creating jobs and increasing riches for all.

Doubtless, based on facts and figures exposed in the report, one can say that ethanol, as a component part of the developing strategy here exposed is a true economic catalyst

Indeed, ethanol has widespread use as solvent of substances intended for human contact or consumption, including scents, flavorings, colorings, and medicines. In chemistry, it is both an essential solvent and a feedstock for the synthesis of other products. It has a long history as a fuel for heat and light, and more recently as a fuel for internal combustion engines.

Bio-Ethanol can be produced from different types of raw materials such as cassava (54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64), molasses, sugar cane (93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99/100, 101, 102), corn and maize (30, 31, 32, 33)

Next delivery - available on October 15, 2010, consider a small scale operation to producing ethanol using one of the above listed raw materials.
